The message reads, in part:
“It is gratifying that the conservatory is celebrating its anniversary with impressive successes and achievements. Today, as in past years, the spirit of freedom, creativity and art reigns within its historical walls. Wonderful teachers and mentors work here, who help their students realise inspirational ideas and the most daring plans, and carefully preserve the great traditions of selfless service to national culture laid down by the founding fathers of the university.
And, of course, the conservatory is proud of many generations of its graduates: outstanding artists and performers, composers and conductors, accompanists and art critics – people that are infinitely devoted to their favourite work.”
